Sasha,
Very nice build.
On the propellor, how did you lengthen the end to make that nice taper? Did you turn a cone first then add it?

Hi,

no that was my first try to turn a cone. The Problem is that the cone not fit very well and the tip runs out of center. So first I cut the old cone and solded a 10mm brass round and than I turned it. So you get a nice running prop.

So you are remaking the whole deck?
Were you dissatisfied with the Engel version?

Hi,

yes i will Remake the complete deck. Look at the pics above and you can see the difference. The original is made by a 2mm file and 2mm cutter. So this new deck is accurate, and with 1mm much more scale.

The other thing is that I am a little scale fetish ; )

Now it makes sense. I have a scale fetish too but not this bad! Looks great so far.
